About

Hello & welcome!

I am:
-a visual communicator attempting to expand to the written word
-a southern transplant to the mid-Atlantic of the US, now living in Ukraine
-a teacher & forever-student
-a sometimes artist and frequent art viewer
-interested in history & the lessons it teaches
-wrestling my yard into shape with mediocre gardening skills yardless. But now I have a few indoor plants.
-traveling: usually near, sometimes far & occasionally only in my mind

I am documenting so I don’t forget. I am inspired by my Grandma who was lucky to have lived a long life with many adventures.  After every journey she sat at her typewriter to record her memories.

I am here to document my journeys and discoveries.
Thank you for stopping by & I hope to see you again.

  1. Your “I am” sounds just like me, except for the gardening because I gave up on that a long time ago. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I hope to read more of your posts soon.

  6. Hello newest Spikey! I know, a bit corny, eh, but that’s the term that has come to stick for those folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it, thrown in for good measure.

    My promise to you is not to be overbearing, just a couple of posts a day, maybe 3 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…

    UNCLE SPIKE
